|I'm showing off!|
Dori and I make an annual trek to Monument Valley. It's located on the Arizona/Utah state line near the Four Corners area. The valley lies within the range of the Navajo Nation Reservation and is accessible from U.S. Highway 163. My father also makes his yearly trek from Las Vegas through these lands to get to his childhood home - a small town an hour away from Monument Valley. When my dad starts the stretch from Kayenta, Arizona, to Blanding, Utah - he gets a smile on his face, and like clock work says, "I'm home".
For Dori and I, it's a magical place. A place to reset our biorhythms (Dori's sci-fi fantasies), our love for the outdoors, our love for the Native American culture, and our relationship.
|This is a very happy rez dog! That's slang for dogs that live on the Navajo Nation Reservation. Usually free and disheveled. They are always happy to see you.|
